Although the global figure of more than 28 billion chickens at any one time might suggest that we are all thoroughly steeped in ‘chicken wisdom’, this is not the case. This no-nonsense, jargon-free guide leads readers through the practicalities of keeping chickens in your garden or on an allotment. It details the selection of suitable breeds for egg or meat production, or both, as well as explaining how they can be kept in humane and, as far as possible, natural ways. What to do when things go wrong and how to remedy them is just one of the practical and essential pieces of information in this authoritative book.
